Hey, thats really cool that you want to learn more about your faith!
Quality of education varies, but dont fret about that. You can enhance your own education! Get your parents to help; let them know that youre really enthusiastic! Let them help you select resources like books, tapes, video tapes, and internet websites--you want to be sure you get the *correct* information. Whats really cool is to do a family activity that exemplifies the Christian life such as volunteering as a family at church or get involved in a soup kitchen or such.
The Catholic faith is both deep and wide. Dont try to learn it all in one week! Let your curiosity go wherever it may. Learn new things every day! Because guess what, we old folks are still trying to learn Catholicism.
Faith is contagious; your faith will inspire others, and others faith will inspire you.
Keep it going Kristen! There is so much to discover! As you go through your teenage years, always remember to take time EVERYDAY to DO something about your faith ... learn it, practice it, share it, pray for it ... something.
I know youll do well!
